Hey guys, this problem is a few months old. But either way, this spring I noticed that I was starting to get hot one morning as I pulled into the garage at work. Coolant was low, filled her up, and the next morning noticed she was empty again. Stopped driving it as I noticed a hairline crack in the radiator that it was leaking from that would spray the coolant back on to the underside of the hood.
Replaced that. Good to go right? Drove it again, started overheating again. Towed it home. All the coolant levels are still full. Let it idle for awhile, no issues.
Drove it one more time, overheated again. Towed home again. Now the heater also isn't pumping out hot air.
I was thinking water pump, although I hope not. Thermostat? System not cycling through the coolant? All the levels are still full, and this has been, 4 months since the radiator change, only been driven three times since. Last test I made it maybe a mile before I started feeling uncomfortable.
I really appreciate any info, as I'm currently on a 5 hour public transportation daily commute for what should be a 30 minute drive to work.
When I've done coolant in the past I bought a funnel with fittings for like $30 on summit.com. this allows you to put extra coolant in and it helps get the air bubbles out.
